Tip Reasoning

  • Sunderland have only lost two of their last 11 league games at the Stadium of Light.
  • Northampton are on a 16-game winless run on the road that stretches back to November.
  • Only Bristol Rovers have scored fewer away goals in League One than Northampton this season.

Black Cats looking to build playoff momentum

Sunderland had been in the hunt for automatic promotion prior to a recent seven-game winless run, although last week’s 3-1 victory at Plymouth could well signal a return to form ahead of the playoffs.

Victory over Northampton on Sunday would certainly add to that belief and the Black Cats have only lost two of their last 11 games at the Stadium of Light despite their recent dip in form.

Lee Johnson has built his side on a strong defence, with only Hull and Blackpool having conceded fewer goals in League One this season than Sunderland’s total of 41.

Northampton’s relegation back to League Two was confirmed following last weekend’s home defeat to Blackpool, with a run of one win in six coming at exactly the wrong time.

The Cobblers’ away form has been one of the major reasons for their relegation, as they have not won any of their last 16 League One games on the road – a run that stretches back to November.

Goals have also been hard to come by for Jon Brady’s team, with only bottom of the table Bristol Rovers having scored fewer on their travels this season.

We are predicting Sunderland to pile on the misery for Northampton on Sunday, as we predict the Black Cats will not only win the match, but they will do so to nil.
